IIID Conversations is a new series of informal events. As the name suggests, they are conversations as much as talks. The speakers will make short presentations of their work or ideas, then we’ll interview them and the conversation will open out to include everyone.
Last year we consulted our members on what they would like to see. Their answer was ‘community’ – most wanted to feel more connected to others in their profession, to gain insight about practice, and to gain new knowledge about the various different types of work information designers do.
IIID Conversations is free for IIID members, and €5 for non-members.
Conversations already organised are:
7 April 2022 at 1400 UTC
Rob Waller (Simplification Centre, UK), discussing the Information Design Summer School – how it works, who comes and how it links theory and practice through critiquing and practical projects.
26 April 2022 at 1300 UTC
Oliver Tomlinson (TDL Creative, UK). Oliver uses information design and visualisation in the construction industry, and will talk about the contribution information graphics makes to successful bid documents.
3 May 2022 at 1300 UTC
Alex Tyers (Transmission Design, Australia). Alex’s practice includes financial information, medicines information, forms and other complex information.
These conversations will also be part of the Information Design Summer School, so summer school participants do not need to register for them.
